We stayed on the upper floor (no elevator, be prepared for stairs) with longer curving balcony and sea view - very nice, lots of fresh air. Attractive, rustic furnishings. Delightful breakfast room. Though in touristic area, on the edge so it didn't feel like it.

I’ve stayed at this small hotel fairly frequently over the past year, using it as a layover stop on my way to Uzbekistan (last November) and Iran (this past June). I chose a single room each time.

We stayed almost two weeks. The hotel has a perfect location in a quiet area, in the old city. Ayasofya is only one minute away. The rooms are clean and the stuff is friendly. We enjoyed the breakfast because the view is wonderful. The hotel is a good option for anyone and we will be back soon.

Staying in Sultanahmet

Neighborhood Profile
Sultanahmet
With so many unmissable attractions within a mere stroll of each other – and all set around the site of an ancient Byzantine hippodrome – Sultanahmet is an overwhelmingly popular tourist destination, and a prime location for visitors to be wowed on a truly epic scale. Beyond the wonders of the Blue Mosque, the Hagia Sophia, Topkapi Palace, and more, this relatively small area of Istanbul somehow manages to retain an air of peace and calm. It offers visitors a significantly less celebrated but nonetheless pleasant network of quaint lanes and side streets, majestic panoramas of the Bosphorus, and an impressive assortment of accommodation options for all budgets and tastes.
